How to Wipe Your iPhone Before Selling

Selling your iPhone is a pretty simple and common thing to do. You either want to go for an upgrade or choose another brand, whatever the reason may be you need to fully wipe the phone before selling it. Here’s how:

Backup Your Data

You most definitely need all the data on your to-be-sold phone. You can either backup your data to your iCloud account or computer. iCloud being your easiest and most flexible option, follow these steps:
  • Connect your iPhone to your computer
  • Open iTunes and select your phone from the left pane
  • On the page in front of you select “Back up to this computer”
  • Right click your iPhone’s name from the left window pane and click Backup.

  • The next step is how to completely wipe your iPhone which you should not start doing until your Backup is complete or else you will permanently loose impotent files.

Wipe Your Data

Go to your Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. Depending on how much files you have on your iPhone the process will take from a few of minutes to a couple of hours.
Sometimes some apps and websites like Pandora will still have some of your data leftover. So every website that you have signed up/logged into on your phone…log out from it.
